Measles, Mumps, Rubella – Information you can use to give Informed Consent

In the Feb 7th 1959 issue of the British Medical Journal, Dr John Fry, GP, remarked,

“Many mothers have remarked “how much good the attack has done their children,” as they seem so much better after the measles.

In the 1950s and 60s, parents used to actually take their children to Measles, Mumps and Rubella parties to try and get them infected.

After a 1990s measles outbreak in a Steiner community in Gloucester, England most parents reported a strengthening and maturing of their child both mentally and physically afterwards “supporting the notion that measles is not a severe illness in most children,” although the author pointed out that the cases were in, “fit, well nourished children from a community that advocates a healthy lifestyle.”

Is ‘advocating a healthy lifestyle‘ offered as a viable alternative to vaccination against measles?
